I possess a nagging desire for the perfect image to freeze, for my surroundings to stay calm and to stop changing. Slowly painting an image of my two children was probably the healthiest way for me to address this otherwise unrealistic demand.
The next quarterly of The Art of Watercolour (on newstands in early June) will feature some kind of story about my watercolors. It is a French magazine, but has an English version as well. To honor the art of French aquarelle painting I'll insert a Cezanne that nicely counters the thick and heavy atmosphere that I normally aspire to create.
